The investment platform EQUI Capital, founded by Scottish baroness Michelle Mone and businessman Doug Barrowman, failed to attract the desired $ 80 million during the ICO. According to the Coin Insider, even despite the extension of the deadline for the project, the project did not overcome the $ 7 million sum raised at the preselling stage.

In addition, the bounty promoters who promoted ICO in social networks and on other online sites stood against the company's leaderships. However, the founders of EQUI Capital proposed to solve this issue with the supervising bounty program by the company AmaZix.

Lady Mone has been mega busy in Silicon Valley dealing with our new founder so, to be honest she doesn’t have the time to be involved by Bounty people complaining over nothing. If they need to complain they should do this to the agency who hired them in the first place and not EQU.

Meanwhile, in August, the official EQUI Capital blog announced the transformation of the company into an international one and announced the launch of the project under the EQUI Global brand with a new co-founder. As it turned out later, he was co-founder of Apple Steve Wozniak. 

By the idea of Michel Mon, Equi, based of Ethereum was supposed to "iencourage women to invest in tech".

Earlier, the baroness lit up in yet another cryptoproject - the construction of a residential complex in Dubai for $ 325 million, an apartment in which it was planned to sell for bitcoins.
